I've been playing with the spiffy new serger and having lots of fun. However, I have an issue. I made Butterick 4807 - knit pants with a self-fabric knit waistband. Fresh out of the dryer, they fit beautifully. But the longer I wear them the more the fabric of the waistband stretches, until the pants are sitting a good 4 inches below where they should. They threaten to fall off me bum. And imagine where that puts the crotch seam. Not good.

So, is this:
a) a pattern problem?
b) a fabric problem?
c) got any other ideas?

I can't make them any smaller or the waistband won't stretch enough to get over my hips in the first place.
